sand out of interlock?

Any tips? I tried hand washing with a woolie bar but still lots of sand in the shorties. I guess I can put in my machine but I didnt really want to wash a load of just one pair of shorties.
Thanks!!

Is the sand embedded in the fabric? If it were me, I think I would run them through the machine w/some other delicates...I am curious to know what other mamas will say

I have a hard time keeping my boys out of the dirt and the sand. They have a "digging hole" in the backyard, and they pretty much play in it whenever they go outside.

throw them in the washer on the gentle or handwash cycle since you already got them wet

I usually kind of beat the sand out of them though while they are dry. mud or dark dirt I have to wash (in washer) but light sand usually comes out w/ a beating
